Light golden yellow - The Côte aux Prêtres Sans Soufre is a Chablis with notes of yellow and green apples, lemons and limes as well as a little mirabelle with notes of yeast, a little crème caramel au beurre salé and lemon tart. On the palate, the Côte aux Prêtres Sans Soufre is superficially silky and fine, but on the back of the mouth it is powerful and clearly acidic.

Wine information

The name of the vineyard Côte aux Prêtres, Hill of the priests, refers to the nearby pilgrimage route from Vézelay to Santiago de Compostela. The spectacular vineyard, 300 meters high, is located on a hill with a dome exposed to sunlight and wind. The soil is strewn with many small Kimmeridge limestones. The vines are around 35 years old. The Sans Soufre will be extended for one year longer than the normal Côte aux Prêtreswhich has a low sulphur content.

Color

light golden yellow

Nose

The Côte aux Prêtres Sans Soufre is a Chablis in which notes of yellow and green apple, lemons and limes, and a little mirabelle plum mingle with notes of yeast, a little crème caramel au beurre salé, and lemon tart. It offers an intriguing balance of yeasty sweet and citrusy chalky notes.

Palate

On the palate the Côte aux Prêtres Sans Soufre Superficially silky and fine, but behind it is powerful and equipped with clear acid pressure. Here, too, it starts with slightly yeasty notes from the long ageing on the lees. But then the citrus notes, the wet stone, the rock salt and a little white pepper take over. The wine is - like its slightly sulphured brother - punchy and vital, juicy and decidedly salty.
